When it comes to improving the quality of our nation's public education system, Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis has some... er, interesting advice for her fellow educators.
EAG News' Kyle Olsen has the details:
Lewis appeared before the New York Collective of Radical Educators (an appropriate audience, to be sure) March 16 to give the keynote address at the group’s annual conference.
Step 1: Always lie to parents about their kids' performance.
Lewis reminisced about her teaching days, when she would lie to parents when it came time to discuss their child’s performance. She then said – because of her lies – the student became her “hostage” who would do what she wanted.
Step 2: Make your bosses' lives a living nightmare.
Lewis also urged the attendees to make life difficult for their building principals.
“Do you have an insane principal?” she said, to laughs and clapping. “Anybody have an insane principal? Take ‘em out. What that means is remove them, by the way, Fox News … How do you do that? You organize to make their lives so miserable.”
